Quick warning for anyone out there.

If you get a call from Augustine Exterminators or Chris Augustine DO NOT take the job. We are now going to court with them for thousands in unpaid bills. Stay away from them.

Lesco/JDL Select Blend Seed

Anyone use this seed this year? If so, any issues with germination? On lawns where I've verticut using this seed, the germination has been very sparse. Of note, these are non-irrigated lawns and rely on the customer watering like crazy due to the dry weather.

Just curious to hear if anyone else has had bad results...

Does anyone here do snow? Ive been in business for 11 years cutting grass and doing landscaping and this year Im jumping into snow. Ill be doing all my houses and a couple commercials that they own. Probably about 50 or so properties. Ive been helping out the guy I used to work for since I went into business so I know the in's out and out's of plows and how to do it.

Im looking for a pricing system though. I know Ill be separating it into groups like the following.

1-4"
5-8"
9-12"
12" and above

Im just not sure how to price driveways from a single drive to a double to a circle.

Anyone have any advice?
